03. Adelaide

Cities
by Anberlin



 

You’re repeating me lines that you think I wanna hear
But I don’t wanna hear anymore
As if sorry is any consolation
For what it’s worth, you’re stringing me along
Shouldn’t need anyone
Shouldn’t need anyone
Just scared of being alone
But by the time you figure this out
And I’m already gone

Adelaide, Adelaide, you really had me going this time
Adelaide, Adelaide, you need to quit, quit making a scene

You keep giving me signs that you think I wanna see
But you’re nothing like you seem
Hide behind your half smile
But the truth is so undeniable
Shouldn’t need anyone
Shouldn’t need anyone
Just scared of being alone
But by the time you figure this out
And I’m already gone

Adelaide, Adelaide, you really had me going this time
Adelaide, Adelaide, you need to quit, quit making a scene

Like lipstick traces on pillow cases
Some things in life are unforgettable
Like love, loss, lies and us and woh ohh
Some things in life are undeniable

Like lipstick traces on pillow cases
Some things in life are unforgettable
Like love, loss, lies and us
Some things in life are undeniable

Adelaide, Adelaide, you really had me going this time
Adelaide, Adelaide, you need to quit, quit making a scene

(Christian/Milligan)

Behind the Song:
'Adelaide was the first show we played in Australia, we have always loved that country and when I was searching for a name to use for this song it seemed only fitting to use a city from AU. I tried Melbourne and Sydney, neither worked, I didn’t try Perth though, should have.

Lipstick Traces was a store that was right around the corner from our studio in Seattle, I always liked the name so I threw it in the bridge.

This song is about me, no one else. I was scared of being alone, I would try to pretend I wasn’t but I needed the attention of the opposite sex to thrive. I learned better, the hard way.' -- Stephen Christian
